Datsunville's Red headed hottie 4 2019


Recommended Posts

Happy New Year everyone

 

Been wanting to do another bare metal car, weird right. However this time put a spin on 2nd color of jambs and engine bay. 

Picked up a 69 2 door from Brian Barnes couple years ago. No one else saw potential but i did. hahahaha

Someone from Northwest might remember this car,  has Washington title, someone did some fun cutting to the tailpanel and spare tire delete 

 

1st thing to do fix ugly, going to install a BMW spare tire well, and cleaner tailpanel 

 

Look close you can see where someone needed the taillight metal and cut big

Just a taste. Dav had been working on her up to this point, after tailpanel vision was in place, we decided to strip her naked.

 

Decided to get aggressive.

Gutted red and got her ready for complete blasting. I know a guy.

Floors went in to another project, not perfect but usable, used the under rear seat floor pan in Red Head. Fire fucked the center of the car. Clean rust free car too.  Front of this burnt Dime is very usable, engine, and suspension,

This project hasn't been touched for a month, most these pics are over the last 6 months. Looking forward to putting color and clear on this one.

 

Tail light panel. Buttoned up most of it and wow, looking at the car makes me feel like all is going to be ok.

This is the fun part Some one cut out the metal that would be used to attach the new panel. I decided to weld strap and form it as if were the flange.

one more step done, mostly 😉

 

 

Question about this.  I am about to take a stab at doing the rockers on my 521.  Is this door bolted back on or is the fellow just holding it back in place?  Is the rocker just held with a few tack welds?  Im just worried about alignment
